SO LET’S GET STARTED!
Before you start to assemble your Orphek Universal Mounting Arm and its Extension check these safety guides:
- If you have all the components
- Read the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm Manual to make sure you will mount it correctly. You will find it at https://orphek.com/anti-rust-aquarium-light-mounting-arm-kit/
- if your tank glass thickness is compatible (check the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm Manual).
Before you start to install your light in the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm and its Extension:
- Disconnect your light from the electricity.
- Decide which is the best layout for your tank and only then choose where to place the brackets.
- Decide the high you wish to set for your Orphek Universal Mounting Arm according to your corals needs.
Before you start to install your Orphek Universal Mounting Arm on your tank:
- Check if all the parts assembled are perfectly placed and screwed, so it won’t dismantle accidentally.
- Check if you have the skills and physical strength to mount it by yourself or you need a second hand to help you.
Assembly of the Orphek Universal Mounting Arms & Extension
We suggest you follow the order below if you haven’t installed your Orphek Universal Mounting Arm yet, in that case follow the instructions of the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm Manual at https://orphek.com/anti-rust-aquarium-light-mounting-arm-kit/
IMPORTANT: Two people are required to mount the light in the cabinet. Orphek recommends that you follow this requirement to avoid accidents of personal nature or involving your Orphek solution.
- Assembly of the mounting arm brackets parts and attachment to your light (check the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm Manual how to do it)
- Attachment of the Orphek Extension for the Mounting Arm (check the steps below how to do it).
- Connection of both parts together and attachment to the cabinet.
HOW TO ATTACH THE EXTENSION TO YOUR ORPHEK UNIVERSAL MOUNTING ARM
STEP 1 SKIP this step if you are mounting your light for the first time
If your Orphek Universal Mounting Arm was already attached to the glass of your tank you will have to detach it first.
STEP 2 Insert the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm into the Mounting Arm Extension bracket as seen in the picture.
STEP 3 Use the 4 M3 6mm round head screws to fix the Mounting Extension Bracket on the Orphek Universal Mounting Arm. Make sure it is correctly placed and fixed so it won’t fall.
STEP 4 Insert the 4 units of the M6 60mm hex head screws through the groove and fix them exactly in the place desired/planned. Make sure it is correctly placed and fixed so it won’t fall.
STEP 5 Fix the Mounting Arm Extension Bracket with the light on your tank.
We suggest to fix the hex head screws with the hex head nut on both two side of the tank. This can help to adjust the space between the tank mounting surface and the tank edge.
Orphek had specifically advised the standard weight that can be hanged by the Orphek Mounting Arm Kit and the compatible thickness of the glass of the aquarium and how to assemble and install this product.
(Orphek Universal Mounting Arm Manual at https://orphek.com/anti-rust-aquarium-light-mounting-arm-kit/ ).
Orphek also advised that this is a 4 hands (2 people) job.
Anti-rust & anti-corrosion process
Orphek Mounting Arm Extension Kit is made of high quality Aluminium alloy, therefore it will never rust even in contact with salted water or in extremely salted humid environments!
It is important to know that the black color of our Mounting Arm kit is not in fact color. We are using electric anodized Aluminium alloy.
What does it mean?
Anodizing is an electrolytic process for producing thick oxide coatings, usually on Aluminium and its alloys. The oxide layer is typically 5 to 30µm in thickness and is used to give improved surface resistance to wear and corrosion, or as a decorative layer. This process artificially changes the structure of aluminum oxide
